Phoebe & Ben – March 2017

Wanaka Wedding Photographers

Warren photographed our wedding in Wanaka on 18 March 2017, and we cannot recommend him more highly.

Warren was fantastic to work with from when we first met him (almost a year before our wedding), right up to receiving our final edited photos after our wedding. He was really responsive to all our questions, made time for numerous Skype calls and assisted with arranging a second shooter and booking our helicopter for post-ceremony photos.

Warren was with us for more than 12 hours on our wedding day. He was fun and easy to have around, put everyone at ease and went out of his way to help make our wedding day special. Our photos are absolutely stunning, from getting ready in the morning, through the ceremony and reception, to a final photo under the stars late in the evening. He captured so many special moments of us and our friends and family on the day.

We could not be more thrilled with our photos, and had a fantastic experience working with Warren. We would recommend Williams Photography to everyone.

Ben and Phoebe.

Joyce & Ruwan – June 2016

We cannot recommend Williams Photography highly enough.

We were planning our wedding from overseas and after researching on many of the amazing wedding photographers in Queenstown we went with Warren and Katrina. They were completely professional and friendly with quick email replies leading up to the wedding which was super helpful when planning an overseas wedding.

On the day, Warren blended in with our group with his easy, laid back attitude. My husband is very camera shy but because of Warren’s personality, managed to be natural in front of the camera. Warren has unequalled knowledge of the landscapes around Queenstown and will work with you to capture not only amazing images of the gorgeous Queenstown backdrop but also of you two as a couple.

Warren spent the whole day with our wedding party and even stayed an hour later than required as we were running late with speeches at our reception. We had a couple of sneak peaks very quickly a few days after the wedding and the highlights blog which came a few weeks later was a huge hit amongst our family and friends. We’ve had endless positive comments about our wedding photographers and we can’t be more pleased with the moments they captured on the day.

Paula & Nelson – April 2016

We cannot recommend Williams Photography highly enough! Warren was our photographer for our wedding in Wanaka, and I understand Katrina helps with a lot of the post-production work. Right from our first meeting, Warren was relaxed, friendly, and professional. Ever since then the communication has been brilliant, he was fantastic at replying to emails promptly, and was great at picking up on the kind of thing we were after and running with it.

We were very keen for the photos to be natural, not look staged, and to really capture the vibe of the day. He managed to do exactly that and so much more. On the day he was fantastic to have around, calm and friendly, and never at all intrusive. Most of the time we barely knew he was there! His ability to capture candid moments, and pick up on important people to capture without us even telling him was remarkable. He also has an amazing eye for beautiful shots, and particularly some of the shots of the gorgeous venue and surrounds are completely breath-taking! The few times I did see him, he was running around all over the place getting amazing sneaky shots!

They were extremely prompt in getting our photos back to us, and did and incredible job in making them shine.

We can’t thank Warren and Katrina enough, and would recommend them to anyone!

We just wanted to thank you for the amazing photographs you took at our wedding. We both agree that the photos you took were absolutely stunning and unlike any we have seen before.

Thank you once again for immortalizing the beauty at our wedding in a way that only you two could have done .
Lots of love,

Top Auckland Photographer

Hi Warren and Katrina

Mother of Alana and now mother-in-law of Michael here – Waiheke Island, Feb 2011. Just to say thankyou for the lovely photographs.

I have seen many wedding photographs in my long life and I think yours are the best I have ever seen. Your use of light brings the photograps alive and really adds that extra element to the photographs. The formal photographs are excellent but the ‘informal’ ones are stunning. I detest those posed ‘Oh! they caught us out photographs.’ You can always tell when a photograph is staged from the tension in the expressions. I think you have an ability to anticipate and then record the events that most relatives would like captured for eternity and to make people look good/natural in the process.
Your unobtrusive, unassuming and friendly manner made it so easy for guests to be relaxed when being photographed and I think that shows in all our photographs. Well done and keep up the good work.

May I wish you both all the best for your wedding and I hope you have as good a day as we all had — to a man!!!! and woman. May I offer some advice. Stay relaxed, go with the flow and don’t panic if things go wrong. And drink plenty of champagne!!

All the best

OMG Warren and Katrina, it actually brought a tear to my eye as I am so amazed at how amazing they are. Thank you sooooooooooooo much I love them. THANK YOU

Nayden & May – October 2010

Matakana Wedding Photographer

Thanks so much! We have had a quick browse through the photos and we agree that they look amazing!

We are super pleased with your images you have taken and would like to reiterate how wonderful you both were on the day! I am sure my friends and family will be just as impressed.

Both of you are very professional, courteous and accommodating . You make a terrific team. Something that we loved was the fact that you were both clearly very enthusiastic about photography, which I believe alawys shows in images.

Many of our married friends are blown away and jealous of the wedding photographer we had! We believe that going with Warren and Katrina was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

 

 

Queenstown Photographers & Photography

Lilian McCombs - Hi there,

So I was flying back from Auckland, where my mum lives, to Sydney today – and noticed the beautiful photos on display in the international departures lounge.

Then I see an ad for you guys on Facebook, and clicked to check it out. Here you are the young NZ photographer of the year! Seems like synchronicity. That and your work is beautiful, cheeky, emotive and creative.

I see you like travelling for weddings, and that it’s Warren’s birthday in June (great month). I’m getting married in Samoa on June 11, 2011 and just wondering what it might cost to get one or both of you there (also love the dual qualification in makeup!)?

We don’t have a huge budget, but I think I could get a bit of extra help from the parents (hopeful smile), so I hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks so much,
Lily

Warren Williams - Hi Lilian,
Thanks for your message, and great to hear you’ve seen Katrina’s work displayed prominently at Auckland Airport.

We will email you later today to discuss further. Very exciting that you’re getting married in Samoa! Love the website too.

Regards,
Warren & Katrina

Erin Harper - Hi Warren and Katrina

Mother of Alana and now mother-in-law of Michael here (trying to send you a testimonial as I can’t work out your address to send you a written letter) – Waiheke Island, Feb 2011. Just to say thankyou for the lovely photographs. I am not a natural computer user so it took me a little while to work out how to navigate your web-site – hence the delay in getting back to you.

I have seen many wedding photographs in my long life and I think yours are the best I have ever seen.

Irene Armstrong - Hi Katrina & Warren, I am looking through your website (not had much time to take the hour needed since meeting you last summer for Alana & Mike’s wedding as Waiheke has become such a hugely popular location for ceremonies that I rarely get off the island for other NZ locations like I used to) as I am often asked for referrals and although I have long since added your name to my file I am enjoying viewing your wonderful work once more.
I officated at a wedding only last night where the photographer was bordering on useless and the couple both commented that they were not looking forward to viewing his results.
They were sorry they had not taken my advice and considered the options I gave them, especilly after they checked your website a few days before the wedding.
I hope to have the opportunity to see a few photos from your own wedding and I am sure you will only have chosen the best person other than yourselves to record your wonderful day.
I will be in contact soon as we will need to begin work with your ceremony shortly.
Enjoy the warmer weather, kind regards to you both, Irene
